This is horrific, and this story needs to be told. Listen to what this mom has to say.
The opioid crisis is taking many lives.
This tragedy started as many of them did — 22-year old Elaina Towery was on prescription medication dealing with an abusive relationship. This caused a downward spiral into illegal drugs.
Her mother, Cheryl, tells the story.
Cheryl Towery, 49, posted the picture of her and her 22-year-old daughter, Elaina, on Monday, the same day she passed away at a Detroit hospital.
Elaina fell into a coma on Thursday after she is believed to have ingested heroin laced with the prescription drug fentanyl, according to WJBK-TV.
Here is the photo that Cheryl posted:
Heroin laced with fentanyl.
We didn’t think you could make either of them worse, but here we are.
Elaina was trying to get back on track and supposed to be starting a new job, but due to her drug addiction, ended up on life support.
Here are some photos of Elaina and her mom from Facebook:
You wouldn’t have guessed about her struggle just by looking at her:
‘She has a 5-year-old son that she gave up due to her addiction,’ Towery said.
‘Because she wanted him to be in a better place.’
Good for Elaina for making that difficult decision to have her son taken care of while she dealt with her issues. Many don’t realize the dangers that children face when parents are addicted.
‘She pulled in here to use the restroom and after 20-25 minutes, he thought it was odd she didn’t come back out,’ Towery said.
At 5:30pm, Towery received a text message saying that her daughter would be home soon.
Shortly afterward, Burger King employees discovered Elaina unconscious on the bathroom floor.
Elaina didn’t have an easy life, but those addicted to drugs don’t.
This isn’t just ‘harshing their mellow’, this is life or death.
And the addiction is so strong it will make you do the unthinkable.
She said her daughter was addicted to heroin, and that she was working as a prostitute.
(She was) beat up, being pimped out, being kept in a hotel room on heroin,’ Towery said.

What a horrible thing to go through. And what a horrible way to lose your child just when you think the nightmare is ending.
Warn your kids often.
Make sure they know exactly where you stand.
It worked for President Trump, it can work for you, too.
ClashDaily.com’s, Editor-In-Chief, Doug Giles how-to book:
In ‘Raising Righteous and Rowdy Girls’, Doug Giles reinforces the notion that little women don’t need to be pampered by their fathers to turn out right. And having met his beautiful daughters, I know his philosophy works. As a strong-willed woman who thinks her daddy is the greatest guy in the world, I can tell you this is a must-read for every man who hopes to earn the same title. —-S.E.
